Celebration - Kaleidoscoping

A highly impacting factor to the Celebration Quilt that we’re making for the 2012 Quilts by Barb Quilt Retreat Get Away Weekend is the Kaleidoscoping blocks we’re using in our quilt instead of the original pattern.  Below I showed you some mosaics of the Kaleidoscopes I made.  The first picture on the left is the original block – the pictures to the right are all the blocks that I Kaleidoscoped to use in my quilt.  It was so much fun!original to kaleidoscopes original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscope original to kaleidoscope original to kaleidoscope original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscoped original to kaleidoscoped Original Design to Kaleidoscope Regular Block -> to Kaleidoscope Block 1 - Original Design then to Kaleidoscope

Not everything worked this well though…here is a strip of blocks I didn’t use:

blocks that didn't make it

I didn’t use the original block on the left.  When I kaleidoscoped it it just wasn’t dramatic or impacting enough.  I didn’t use the block second from the right because it reminding me too much of a swastika and I didn’t use the block farthest to the right just because it didn’t fit.  But don’t worry – I will definitely be using this block somewhere – it’s just too cool!

I’m showing you these as a bit of a teaser…I have my quilt top finished!  Stop back in a few days to see what it turned out like :)
